I was wondering about this too. This would be wonderful.

Yes - sometimes (in fact quite often really) I don't complete a task that I should have done on a particular day.
If that task isn't crossed off as completed I want it automatically forwarded to the next day - and so on until I actually complete it and cross it off the list.
After all Sidekick used to do this - why can't Google.?

I would also like this feature. Will this be implemented?

Please reminder, native iPhone app...
|scrounger55||3/10/10 2:41 PM|
Having reminder notifications for tasks would be fantastic especially if the tasks are repeating events.
|vitorsouza||3/11/10 1:56 AM|
+1 on that!
|tevyaw||4/20/10 9:02 PM|
With Google Talk, Labs edition, you can get calendar notifications on your desktop. However, the tasks calendar won't let you set notifications on it.
Google, please make the tasks calendar have notifications like a normal calendar.
|anthonydyson||4/25/10 4:31 AM|
Would like this too
|mattrei||4/29/10 8:05 AM|
PLEASE do this!!
|RobCrowe||4/29/10 11:07 AM|
Yes, it would be good if the calendar could send notifications about tasks, just as does with events.
|coentre||6/2/10 2:00 AM|
I also would like this very much
|anjalisimone||7/23/10 1:23 PM|
How do we get google to pay attention and change this feature - I would really like my task list for the day to appear in my 5 am daily calendar reminder!
|My Vj||8/14/10 2:11 PM|
Please consider this feature request. It would be great!
|souljah777||8/19/10 10:01 AM|
I'd like to see this implemented too. Google functionality is excellent but is definitely missing this one feature. It is something that Outlook does and rather than having to use additional services such as Remember the Milk and Astrid, I would rather be able to organise everything in one place. The existing apps (GTasks etc) that sync with the Google tasks calendar are very limited and whilst you can set reminders on some of them on the Android phone, you can't if you're entering the task on a PC through the Google site. This means you have to edit the task on your phone once synced and if you have to do this you may as well use the phone in the first place. The beauty of Google is being able to input information to your online account on a PC and have that information on your Android phone straight away. It's poor that you can't do this with tasks.
I'm a confirmed convert from Windows Mobile to Android but this is really annoying.
|boss111||8/30/10 7:38 PM|
yep definitely missing this
|fineguesser||9/15/10 5:29 AM|
I solved this problem by setting up a calendar titled items due. That way I can have them repeat, like monthly bills or tax filings, and use the reminder function
|aduerst90||9/20/10 11:50 PM|
The only trouble I have with using an events calendar for reminders and to create recurrences is that a task is not really an event. For example, I do not need to describe where to take out the trash on Wednesday.
|James Fu||10/8/10 9:59 AM|
Want task reminder (by specific time) very much! (since sometimes add email as event doesn't auto fill the content at all!)
|cdobbs99||10/28/10 5:31 PM|
All these people are saying the same thing! No answers are given, no assistance rendered. How can anyone find this jibberrish helpful? The problem has clearly and repeatedly been addressed. Now, would someone please answer the questions?!?!?
|Luke I||12/4/10 7:58 PM|
Also waiting for the task notifications. Stuck today cause of their lack.
|William Rudersdorf||12/6/10 11:14 AM|
I can't believe Google hasn't make this simple adjustment yet!! Get ur done!!!!!
|alokjuneja||12/7/10 6:27 AM|
GOOGLE BHAI...I FOUND UR TASK FUNCTIONALITY VERY SIMPLE AND USER FRIENDLY...AS I M USING I HAD ONE REQUIREMENT, CAN U GUYS BUILD NOTIFICATIONS ON TASK START & DELAY..I FEEL THIS IS IMPORTANT.
|ullivilli||12/16/10 1:53 PM|
|Devin||12/29/10 10:27 AM|
Yes please to task notifications, notifications in the 5 A.M. email, and specific start/end times for notifications.
|mkennedy||1/13/11 2:42 PM|
i swear i'm losing my mind - i got a reminder from a task last week, think i might have set it up on GTO on android? Or perhaps in Gapps? I cant tell, my worls is getting so fragmented tryin to use google - I wish Gapps would act like gmail and that since they don't android could at least merge the resulting divergent calenders, contacts and tasks and present at least one place where i was only using one app,. At any rate, I'm unable to duplicate the feat which is why I ended up here. Like other users, tasks rolling over until completed is a very basic tool I've long ebeen used to. It makes task dates much less useful having to go and update a bunch of un-completed tasks every morning. My old PIM just let me drag and drop stuff on the calender, very nice. Actualyy, I could just drag and drop a contact on to the calender to set an appoitnment, or drop them on the task list to create a task. If they had android I'd probably switch back, they're so much better than google. And I'm totally frustrated with G apps.

Thanks for your comments, we actually ran a poll a few months ago on Tasks feature requests. Here is the most recent blog post we published with some of the results:
|lacombino||4/11/11 11:03 AM|
It is exactly what I really need too !
|MapGps||4/27/11 9:50 AM|
I find google task bar useless without notification feature. Its a must have and I don't use task bar due to lack of the feature.

So in January 2011 the Google Blog post referenced above said that poll results indicated overwhelming support for a feature that enabled users to receive notifications of tasks. It's July 5 on my calendar. Its been 5 months and this hasn't happened, yet Google has bought companies and rolled out entirely new products (i.e. Google+) during this time.
What was the purpose of taking the poll if you weren't going to do anything with the poll responses. Task notifications is a big deal to me and to a large number of other users. I'm considering terminating my two Google Apps accounts and returning to Outlook.
Seems to me that if Microsoft (who has no ability to be innovative) can provide this function it should be easy for the Google developers to do it too. Clearly, no one has paid any attention to this issue or it would have been addressed by now.
|felicecheung||7/7/11 9:04 PM|
Agree. Task alert is a must. Would be nice that if I could send task alert to guest as well.
|mnewberry||7/11/11 7:59 AM|
I would very much like to see this feature as well.
|andycool22||7/17/11 10:43 AM|
i also would love to see tasks automatically moved to the next day if they aren't marked as completed and then hidden. Outlook does this but I want it on my google calendar.
|pnhturenorth||7/19/11 7:04 AM|
It is a real shortcoming not having task reminders and it seems it shouldn't to that difficult for google to accomplish!
|dmanrtfm||7/20/11 7:41 AM|
I would like an answer too. I am using GTasks as a chrome extension that places the items on my Google Task list (and allows a separate tab just for tasks). The GTASKs app on my android syncs and allows me to set a reminder. This tells me that the reminder function is part of ANDROID and not Google/Apps/Tasks. It is a workaround but allows me to have phone reminders and still have tasks on my GMail in case I log on using another computer (sans reminders)
|raw31||7/30/11 1:01 PM|
Dear "Google Employee", is there a place where we could perhaps get a status update of the "Top tasks for Google Tasks" work being done? It is bewildering that Google Inc. is recurringly (pun intended) faltering on this for last 2 years while apps like Evernote, Todolist, Simplenote etc. are taking away the lions share.
What seems to be the problem??
|lacombino||10/21/11 1:25 AM|
Please I want it too !
Please add notifications on google tasks
|miles41||11/3/11 8:02 AM|
Yeah, they put a "reminders" function on iPad2 that really works well.
So, after all these years, Google Tasks is going by the wayside.. Too bad.
|bmarshall8||12/6/11 8:13 PM|
This is a very fundemental need for how I use common tasks.. GOOGLE PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE! :) Thank you for considering all our interests and comments in these posts.. ;)
|brigshaw||12/7/11 6:57 AM|
All I'd like is the same functionality I used to have with my old Nokia, non-android, or with Outlook. A task is not the same as a meeting or event, and I'd like the following functionality:
1) to set date and time reminders for tasks and/or to do lists
2) to have incomplete tasks automatically roll over to the next day
3) to be able to add a task at one point during the day, for later that day, and be reminded about it - without having to set it up as an event.
4) for tasks/to do items to show in 'agenda' view on my phone as well.
I don't want to download a separate app when this function is a fairly essential function, judging by the posts on here! We have a calendar, we have events, which have reminders, we have tasks/to do lists - with no reminders. I just can't see the logic - or the problems in linking one to the other.
Tasks/to do lists do not show up in 'agenda' view either which again I would have thought was a basic requirement for a to do/task list.
|s123123123||5/28/12 7:21 AM|
Any news on this?
we are in 2012 and this basic function is still missing :-(
